Track Name: Moon
Will you be my moon
If I'll be your sea
And pull me to you
When the light leaves?
Just follow the Son
He'll lead you to me
And all will be right
So sleep

Well these burning stars
Could be worlds as great as ours
And we may be lost
In infinity
But can you believe
That in the endless stretches of eternity
Your heart should beat
For you and me

Will you be my wind
If I'll be your trees
And whisper your secrets
To me?
I've followed the sun
And scaled soaring peaks
But nothing compares
To your breath on my cheek

Well these burning stars
Could be worlds as great as ours
And we may be lost
In infinity
But can you believe
That in the endless stretches of eternity
Your heart should beat
For you and me
Track Name: Stormclouds
Summer nights in fall
Red light in gray
All refracted towards
A reckoning day

Old songs in walls
Let me be for now
Where you are tonight
And never be found

We were meant to
Never forget this moment

New days undone
Suddenly it seems
All the wreckage of
Our innocent dreams

Comes crashing down
In memories that rise
From the echoes of
A lowercase cry

We were meant to
From a harbor turned to home
From a silence turned to stone
Never forget this moment

We were meant to
From our laughter turned to light
From a melody turned to might
See the tops of stormclouds
Track Name: Aurora
The bluebird
Of the gray skies
Sings an old song
Of a sunrise
A great spoon
Of fire lifted from the sea

And the branches
All about him
Tap an old tune
Of a mountain
The moonlight
A whisper upon her cheek

Now I sit
And remember
On a cold night
In December
When I saw
The sun sink beneath the sky
But I've seen
The light in between her eyes
Track Name: Sailor's Song
I am a sailor
Charting a world of blue
And churning the secrets
That pulled me away from you

Under a red sky
Bleeding into the hues
Of every sunrise
My heartache starts anew

I sing with the sirens
In harmony ebbed and cold
And bend the horizon
To slow the night's enfold

Under the starlight
Darkness will seek her toll
But she'll search relentlessly
For there's nothing left of me
But you

(Our breaths in synchrony
The waves a static symphony
Oh, now, fall slowly into me
My love, I'll be your reverie)

The waves drum the shoreline
Into these empty hands
Until they turn my
Heart of stone to sand
Track Name: Kairos
I speak in sad songs 'cause I don't know how
To tell you that I'm so afraid
Afraid that redemption is weighing me down
And turning my golden to gray

Time passes through me with nothing to show
I've wasted it all in a dream
So here I awaken to nothing but woe
And laden with gravity

And if I fall apart
Whenever I follow my heart
What can I say?
For I stand between
The man that I know I could be
And all his mistakes
So for now I lay in wait
For you

I'd speak in silence but I don't know how
And honestly I'm terrified
You see it's perfection that's wearing me out
And I don't know how long I'll survive
Oh, somewhere between this sorrow you'll see
A trace of the boy that you knew
The ruins of me left scattered at sea
Making their way beyond the moon

And if I fall apart
Whenever I follow my heart
What can I say?
For I stand between
A minefield of my memories
And all of my pain
So for now I lay in wait
Yeah for now I'll lay in wait
I was born to fly away
With you
